Technology can be beneficial as well as destructive. Much depends upon how useful it is, and how much easier it can make one’s life for us. Many of the tech gadgets that are highly appreciated by the media are often those that are rather problem-solvers.
Gadgets are considered to be better when they make our lives better and also help the environment.
One does live in a world where more than 600 million people do not have access to clean drinking water, which is considered to be the most essential. Science is made use of to facilitate its availability. The same applies to other requirements of our daily lives.

16. IN PROGRESS: REAL-TIME DIAGNOSTICS FOR BETTER HEALTH
Efforts are on to develop several biomedical gadgets. These gadgets can indeed monitor health and aid in the prevention of diseases. By 2020, one’s biomedical watch will indeed be able to keep a tab on things that are making one feel better and sound an alarm if something is wrong.
15 THE PHILLIPS SMART SLEEP HEADBAND
It will help one to get most out of the sleep. It can improve slow wave sleep. The slow wave sleep occurs when the brain and the breathing to slow down to their lowest. It basically enables this sleep to help in the restoration as well as recovery of brain cells as well as memory. If this headband does boost slow wave activity, it will indeed make one’s brain repair as well as restore itself that much faster.
14 IN PROGRESS: SELF-DRIVING CARS
Fully autonomous cars (like the 007 ones) may indeed take a decade time to arrive. More cars with plenty of autonomous features such as parking assist will be in the offing in the coming future. Also, the driver will be left to simply check the speed. In the next few years, cars will no doubt be made intelligent enough to follow safety rules, change lanes and even drive on otherwise dangerous or curvy roads
13. THE PHILIPS 9000 SERIES 4K OLED TV
This razor-thin OLED is the perfect antidote to stress. The Ambilight technology does make use of the screen in a manner that the image does appear larger than life. This tech also makes the viewing more “immersive” by subtly illuminating the surroundings and giving the room a nice glow.
12 IN PROGRESS: OFFLINE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
The artificial intelligence does delve into the copious amounts of data that is available on the World Wide Web. It does help to dig out one’s answer. Most of these respective intelligent assistants will indeed be able to operate locally, minus any Internet connection.
11. THE POWERDOT
One ’s muscles are stimulated them for better growth, in tandem with the workouts one does. The PowerDot is useful in this respect. It does make use of electric muscle stimulation (EMS) to jolt those muscle fibers into being better at their job, thus making one stronger and more toned in turn. One can connect this device to the Power Dot app on one’s phone in order to help one select the workouts as well as intensity level.
10. IN PROGRESS: BATTERY-FREE GADGETS
Even the longest-lasting battery has to ultimately be plugged into an electrical outlet to be charged. Researchers have been trying to commercialize a technique referred to as backscattering. Backscattering selectively does reflect incoming radio waves to make a new as the well stronger signal. This tech can rather result in battery-free gadgets, which will indeed work and communicate via energy harvested from nearby devices.
9 JAYBIRD RUN
Earphones, as well as headphones, can be annoying when one runs. One can look out for Jaybird Run, which users refer to as the perfect wireless “sport” headphones. They are comfortable, non-bulky and do not slip off when one raises the intensity of one’s workout. They also do have excellent sound quality and can go as loud as it is safe and recommended.
8. IN PROGRESS: HYDRO-VENUS, WHICH GETS ENERGY FROM TIDAL WAVES
The Hydro-VENUS (Hydrokinetic-Vortex Energy Utilization System) can potentially harvest the energy that is generated by tidal waves and power the entire coastal towns and neighboring communities. With zero emissions, this could indeed provide a clean and green energy and does not harm marine life at all. It also does produce 75% more energy than the traditional propeller-based systems used in hydroelectric plants.
7. MY SPECIAL AFLAC DUCK FOR KIDS WITH AILMENTS
Smart robotic are becoming very popular, with several brands offering interactive edutainment options, while some exist for pure entertainment. My Very Special Aflac Duck is of course very different and at the same time important as well. It has been developed by Sproutel, much designed to provide comfort and companionship to children with illnesses.
6.IN PROGRESS: ORAL B GENIUS 9000S TOOTHBRUSH
Electric toothbrushes are very useful things. They do help one brush well and is convenient for the dentist as well to recommend it. The Oral-B Genius 9000S is useful indeed and a very innovative idea.
